I wasn’t going to post a blog today but have just heard the sad news that Brittany Murphy has died at the age of 32. I am not aware of any of the details as yet but have just read the following on the BBC news website.

“The actress died on Sunday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center near Beverly Hills, a hospital spokeswoman has confirmed.

The LA Times said Murphy went into cardiac arrest, but hospital sources would not release the cause of death.”

Murphy came to fame at 18 in Clueless but had been working on TV for several years before that. For me her most memorable roles where in : Girl, Interrupted (1999), Spun (2002), 8 Mile (2002) and Sin City (2005). We will be seeing more of her on the big screen in the new year, according to IMDB she had four films in post production including Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables. A music lover she had a band in the 90’s called “Blessed Soul”, she was lead singer. In 2006 she sang on Paul Oakenfold’s hit single “Faster Kill Pussycat”. Brittany was married to British writer, director, producer Simon Monjack.  She will be sadly missed.
